Subject: what about Myrtle??
Here we have a film about hygiene and there is no mention that Myrtle is being shared by three soldiers...wtf?
Subject: Fresh & Clean
This film has it all: great songs (about showering regularly), a message (keep clean, brush your teeth and more subtly, wipe your ass), a love triangle, a story of triumph over adversity (Homer conquers his ignorance and squalorwell, maybe just his squalor), square dancing, dopey gags, homoeroticismit's impossible to imagine that *Personal Hygiene* was not completely successful at getting our troops to feel great about staying clean. In fact, I got so excited that I stopped it in the middle of the first half and gargled with mouthwash. This is the sort of film you have to share with others just to prove you're not making stuff up! Sublimely absurd.
Subject: What are you gonna with a stinky assed soldier?
Frequently amazing and mouth droppingly stupid movie which tells the journey of Homer (!) dirty soldier, who raises the ire of his company by stinking so much. Instead of a giant talking bar of soap to help him come around to his senses, his company tries to. But Homer is not the learning type, the only thing he cares about is his music. So the company decides to teach homer cleanliness by SINGING FOLK SONGS!!! My god, if this is not the craziest concept in a film, I'd like to show me it. The soldiers frequently burst out into song, as if it were MGM in the 1950's that it stretches into the bizarre and comical. Songs like 'What are you going to do with a dirty soldier?' 'Blisters On Your Feet' and most espcially 'Come a fly-yi-yippee-i-yay' (about diseased flies). Also features bizarre homoeroticism (Homer is this close to getting raped in the shower lol) and strange humor. OBVIOUSLY not your straight laced army training film, this is about as far fetched a film you're going to find here.. And how can I NOT give it 5 stars and a MUST SEE reccomendation on this site??
